    the line of reflection is like a mirror the distance from the point to the mirror is the same as from the mirror to the new location.

    reflection number 1 the given point is on the line of reflection so I think it stays reflection number 2 the distance from the line = (4 + 3) = 7 units the new point will be 7 units in the other direction (-4 -7) at the same height so the y value is not changed the new location after these 2 reflection I got ( -11, 2)
